Good value for the cost. Close to the Wild Animal Park which is the best thing about this hotel. The free breakfast is pretty good....nothing to get too excited about. Hotel staff workers are very nice.
There are lots of fast food places near and a good shopping center across the street is convienent. Close to the freeway, (maybe too close b/c you can hear the noise), with plenty of free parking.
The negative things about this place are the hot hallways, the tiny and smoke-smelling elevator and the sad-looking stray cats that live in the embankment next to the hotel. The poor cats are starving....they'll eat anything, (lettuce even), that you throw to them.
